Holy shit! I guess a broken system can get things right once in a while.

About time.

I always said it, go after money and it’ll solve the problem fast. Obama was too incompetent to understand that. “America First” isn’t a liberal thing.

As much as illegal immigration needs to be curtailed, I would say my preference would be to go after the employers first. Don't put a pie on the sill and not expect flies. Wait, was that racist?

The raids come as President Donald Trump’s administration has been carrying out high-profile immigration enforcement actions against employers.

Nailing employers of illegals would be more effective than the wall at halting illegal immigration.

No, it's perfectly logical that if you can travel to a different country and make much more than you could in your own, you would do that. Race is irrelevant.

I wholeheartedly agree that going after the employers could be effective. However, the government should be consistent and thorough. As it is now, enormous numbers of employers in certain businesses hire illegals, but enforcement is so spotty that it isn't a deterrent. Please check out "Gresham's law" on wikipedia or elsewhere.

Instead, I fear, these kind of raids are being used as a political weapon. The government can target and punish certain people or companies that don't toe the "correct" political line or don't given enough "donations" to the right politicians.

This is just like Manafort's current predicament. He, like nearly all "operatives" in his field, has broken numerous laws for decades. It would be great if thousands of people like him landed in jail, but the reality is that thousands get a free pass and only he is being targeted merely because he worked briefly on the Trump campaign.

They really need to be raiding construction sites and restaurants in the DC area.

This is really excellent news!

Hopefully more and more employers of illegals will be arrested and jailed for flagrant violation of US law.

Fantastic! A number of arrests of law-breaking employers over a few months will go a long way.

Why are there illegals in America?
Republicans are in charge.
